Intended Workgroup Outcomes UCEDD program will have a revised template, based on an updated Logic Model and appropriate measures, to facilitate the process for reporting progress on an annual basis. The revised template will provide more accurate data on UCEDD core function outcomes as a result of the development of a clearer definitions and directions for collecting data and reporting on activities. ADD, the UCEDDs, and other stakeholders will be able to use the data to better show the impact of UCEDD activities on individuals with DD, families, and others. There will be a meaningful and efficient link between the Annual Report (and needed data collection) and the independent evaluation of the UCEDD network (i.e. PART/DDPIE).

Questions for Consideration In order for the independent evaluation of the UCEDD network to be based on the independent validation of data collected from current reporting requirements, we must improve the validity and reliability of current data collection practices. Can we commit to this as a network? We must do a better job of telling our story in terms of impact. Will redesigning the Final Report to summarize intermediate outcomes help us do this? Does it make sense to frame our Annual Reports in terms of the core functions and our Final Reports by areas of emphasis? Could there be a constructive relationship between a UCEDD’s Final Report and its next Five Year Plan?
